I installed wxcam_1.0.6_i386.deb on Ubuntu 10.4 and the program opens fine
but displays a black screen. I believe it is pulling from the wrong input on
my capture card (like VLC and xawtv default to). Can wxCam be switched to
the composite input?
This is what wxCam detected:
Name: Kworld ATSC110/115
Min resolution: 48x32
Max resolution: 704x480
I tried all of the Video Standards yesterday (I am using NTSC).
I was able to get it working this morning by doing the following.
Frame format: YUYV
Close the program and reopen. This gave me static on the screen instead of
black indicating it was pulling from the Television input (actually it only
showed static for a second and then went black but this was because mythtv
is running in the background - if I shut mythtv down it stays static).
To get my survallence CCTV camera working on the composite input I did the
Change input to: Composite1
Open wxCam and now instead of showing the Television input it is pulling
Maybe my next research will be to find out how to get v4l to use Component1
